Nevada ProCase Preview: Demitri Diamant

Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

Diamant comes into the ProCase with legit two-way capabilities at the next level. With a fastball that has already been up to 91 mph complemented by a tight breaking ball that works well off of the same plane as his fastball. On the mound is where his future may lie with a potential power arm that continues to trend positively in the velocity department. But, he has show an impressive power surge in recent weeks with both the Dodgers Elite Scout Team and the Gorman Fall team. A couple tweaks at the plate have helped his power potential turn into present power especially to the middle-pull side. Defensively, his athleticism allows him to play up the middle at the high school level, but any level beyond should shift him to the third base position, especially with his arm strength. A prospect with this caliber of tools paired with the confidence he has found in the past few months makes him an interesting follow and projects to show very well at the first ever PBR Nevada ProCase.

Scouting Report

2/10/19 -Stocky, 5-foot-10 175, Diamant is a strong bodied infielder with a good arm. He has good infield actions and the ability to play all three infield spots.  He is polished above his years and makes the difficult throws with relative ease. Diamant can change arm angels when plays dictate with a feel for touch throws. Pure speed and agility may lend better to second or third based down the road but for now he can profile at shortstop.  He maintains a solid combination of strength and bat speed with a power approach.  He hits from his backside with a degree of loft to a swing plane that projects power. Diamant is an athlete that could likely play anywhere on the field and won’t be on the market long. On the mound, he is an upright short strider, throwing over a stiff front side.  He has a feel for three pitches with occasional run on a fastball ranging, 81-84.  His curveball has good spin and consistent depth at 70 mph.  Diamant has steady arms speed on his changeup at 76.  This is an athlete toeing the rubber, pure arm strength and pitch action will allow him to compete. Delivery adjustments could lend to a potential front-line arm, making him a two-way prospect.
